A little girl who will tragically go blind within months, due to an incurable degenerative eye condition, has created a 'bucket list' of things she wants to see before she totally loses her sight.

Molly Bent is just six, but is now determined to make the most of something many people take for granted - packing a host of must-see sights into whatever time she has left with her vision.

From dinosaurs to the pyramids of Egypt, the little girl is focusing on all of her favourite things.

"One of the things on your list was going to the Natural History Museum," Ruth Langsford said, chatting to Molly on the set of This Morning.

"So we thought, as you're coming to see us, we'll try to get you over to the Natural History Museum."

During Molly's special visit, she got to touch artefacts that no other visitors usually get to even see.

"No one else was allowed to go in there, except for the scientists," the chuffed little girl said.

Molly was also delighted to go to the London Aquarium to see the sharks, to go for a ride on the London Eye, and of course to get a big hug from Eamonn Holmes.

But the little girl has got loads more things on her list.

Mum Eve and dad Chris explained how they wanted to turn the devastating news of Molly's diagnosis into as much of a positive experience as they can.

"I think you've made so many other people think what is precious to them," Eamonn said.

This Morning was delighted to help out further, ticking a few more things off Molly's list by providing tickets to Legoland and a very special bus to go to see Buckingham Palace and other London sights.
